Original 3-bedroom home ready for a new lease on life


The history of Canberra lies in the walls of homes just like this one. Built in a bygone era when Watson locals would visit the Starlight Drive-in theatre on a warm summers night, this original 1960's home is now ready for rejuvenation.

Driving through the quiet street you'll no doubt notice a mix of the old & the new; small cottages with remnants of the past alongside impressive two-storey new builds. Though this home has seen its golden age, there are many desirable qualities left to be cherished like the sun through north-facing windows, playgrounds at each end of the street & a sought-after position in the tightening suburb.

44 Simpson Street appeals to the hopeless romantic that doesn't give up on a hidden gem & the forward-thinking modernist that is ready to knock down & rebuild an architectural marvel. Perhaps the new home you create could even rival the home that set the suburb sale record at $1,570,000 just a few doors down. Whatever your property passion is, this quaint 3-bedroom home welcomes you to visit the past & envision your future as a Watson resident for years to come.
